One of the downfalls of most iPhone docks have been minimized through accommodating cases and increasing the weight of the dock itself so one handed undocking can be done. Mophie is looking to finally create the perfect dock for their line of Juice Pack cases with the Juice Pack Dock. Is it finally the dock we were all waiting for? Find out in the full review after the break!
The Mophie Juice Pack Dock has a pretty simple design (simple is usually good). It has a USB connector to plug into your Apple charging brick and it’s very stable at around 7 oz in weight. The unique design aspect you will notice is the pogo-pins that are at the base of the dock. This provides the easiest docking method we have ever seen. Placing the Mophie Juice Pack on the dock (without having the align a lightning connector or micro USB connector) instantly begins charging your device via the pogo-pins.
The build quality of the Mophie Juice Pack Dock was excellent as the matte finish enabled scratch and scuff resistance.
One element we did notice was charging felt a bit slower than charging via a cable directly. While the frictionless charging via the pogo-pins enables easy docking and undocking, it seems to charge slower. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing given the ease of use the frictionless charging provides, but we felt it was important to mention.
Overall, the Mophie Juice Pack Dock is one of the most innovative and best docks we have reviewed in a long time. If Mophie could also solve the charging speed reduction given this new frictionless charging method, they quite possibly could have the perfect dock.
